I asked a number of colleagues that since we are now in the second quarter of 2017, how far are they from achieving their goals for the year. Sadly, but not surprisingly, over half of the respondents could not tell me the 10 most important goals they had set for the year.
Most could remember just a few from the top of their heads. It is no wonder that many people, including many in business, do not even bother to set yearly goals. A few months into the year, the hustles and bustles of life would have taken their minds off the goals.

At the close of each year, some of us subconsciously give up on our remaining goals because we think there’s simply no time left. Then, the following year we get sucked into the “New Year, new me” vacuum. We set goals, tell all our friends this will be the year we stick to our goals and they will come to fruition come hell or high water. Like clockwork, by February or March, we decide to throw in the towel and hope no one remembers our grand proclamations. Here are some tips to keep you motivated throughout the year and propel you to greatness. Read more
